Blow Molding

Software from ANSYS can help process engineers overcome a number of challenges in the area of blow molding, including the critical problem of achieving optimal parison thickness. ANSYS tools support mechanical simulations of compression, top loads and drops to ensure optimal material thickness and product performance. The solutions address all phases of various types of blow molding, including extrusion, injection, stretch and 3-D extrusion. Each phase presents numerous design challenges that can be addressed with flow modeling and analysis.
